Young Curator’s Club: Rock Detective

Investigate and identify rocks and fossils.

Find out about Wiltshire’s geology and the prehistoric creatures that lived here. Create plaster cast fossils and take part in other experiments and activities to discover more about rocks and fossils.

Our Young Curator’s club (previously Young WANHS) is for 8-13 year olds and will take place, as before, on the second Saturday of each month. Sessions are focussed around our collections and exhibitions, and subjects we look at include archaeology, history, natural history and art. Take part in practical activities such as archaeological recording, experiments, art, and walks to local archaeological sites. There are also opportunities to visit or take part in local archaeological digs taking place.

There’s no annual fee, pre-booking is essential (maximum 12 children per session) to help us plan. Each session costs £6 per child.

New members are always welcome

For more information, please contact Ali Rushent, our Learning and Outreach Officer.
